    I'm making 6 movements and 6 dials size 1 meter in diameter to be installed in 3 postclocks back to back dials with backlighting. The project is due to install in June 15 in the southern part of the Philippines. Here is one of the pic hope you like it. Thank you.

    Re: Clocks installed

    I have just returned home finishing the clocks installation and here are the pictures. You can see in one of the pictures the owner requested as to add arabic nos. Also picture taken at night with the clock's lights on. The location is a 3-day trip with a ferry and more than 1 hour by plane from Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Hope you enjoy seeing it, thank you.

    Great looking clocks. Are they controlled by a single electronic master clock?

    Yes Harold, every post with 2 dials and 2 movements is controlled with master clock controller that I designed myself. It uses a microcontroller chip and a quartz oscillator that I made to vibrate at a rate of +2 minutes per year and it has a back up power supply that in time of switching during power failure the chain division in the frequency are not affected.:)
